Centaur Theatre presents
WILDSIDE THEATRE FESTIVAL
January 4 to 13, 2018
The “hottest two weeks in winter” returns with six stimulating shows!
PRODUCED BY: CONFABULATION / FEATURING: MATT GOLDBERG AND FIVE GUEST STORYTELLERS
Hosted by comedian and storyteller Matt Goldberg, Confabulation is an evening of curated true stories, told by the people who lived them. For Wildside, Confabulation is exploring the theme “Eye of the Storm – stories of the quiet and the chaos”.
ONE NIGHT ONLY!! WED JAN 10 9PM
CONCEPT AND CREATION (IN COLLABORATION WITH THE PERFORMERS): HELEN SIMARD / WRITTEN BY: HELEN SIMARD, MATHIEU LEROUX / FEATURING: STACEY DÉSILIER, STEPHANIE FROMENTIN, JACKIE GALLANT, SÉBASTIEN PROVENCHER, EMMALIE RUEST, ROGER WHITE, TED YATES
Part dance show, part rock concert, and part hallucination, Idiot is the second of a trilogy of absurd creations inspired by the legendary American musician: Iggy Pop.
“It’s raw, it’s direct, it’s brutal, and it’s beautiful. Helen Simard manages to both move us and make us laugh with Idiot. It makes you want to fall back into Pop’s discography, and to reinvent the world in your own fashion.”
– Le Canal Auditif
